Clear Channel Yanks Stern

As if Bubba the Love Sponge wasn't enough...

Looks like Clear Channel is on a crusade to clean up its act, responding to fines and pressure from the FCC. Now Howard Stern has been yanked from six Clear Channel stations simultaneously. Gee, it's really easy for the federal government to force its will on the country's radio stations, considering they're all owned by, what, four companies?

And thank you, Chairman Powell, for interpreting "community standards" to mean that the entire country constitutes one homogeneous community.
